Go Big or Go Home: The cattle industry is declining in available breeding cattle. The discussion obviously turns to why that is. Does this desire to expand really drive cattle producers? Do we get bigger at all cost?
While memories of the calving season are still fresh in your mind (and your calving book is your reference book of choice), now is the time to review this year’s calving distribution. Evaluate how your management is working.
The science and art of livestock selection can be baffling. If one does a quick check on the Internet for the meaning of baffling, one finds it means “to frustrate or check (a person) as by confusing or perplexing.”
The deck is not stacked, but the cow-calf producer does hold a good hand. As producers, we have a choice when to “call” the hand and turn the reins over to the next segment of the industry. While some say producers are in the driver's seat, others say the producer of the calf or owner of the cow is at the bottom of the deck and has to take whatever is offered.
There is a time to set aside the business of life and simply do. Even the best-run business, cattle or otherwise, cannot deny that, in the end, someone else is in control, regardless of who we are, and really does not ask for input.

If one has ever dismantled an old home, lifting the floorboards can be quite interesting. Perhaps it is as simple as an old coin that rolled between the boards or a long-held stash of papers put there as a place to reside and eventually were boarded over.
